Joshua’s role is to help develop the software architecture for the full-scale Roboat to achieve autonomous navigation through Amsterdam’s canals. He works closely with his AMS teammates and researchers at the MIT Senseable City Lab, to bring cutting-edge research to the waters of the Marineterrein.
Having moved from the torrid weather of New Zealand in favor of the sun, surf and sustainability of Amsterdam, Joshua quickly learned that sun and surf are variable. But on the sustainable front, he was stoked to land at the AMS Institute, where he’s realizing his goal to create innovative solutions to the pressing problems of today.
Joshua's professional career has been varied, including computer vision start-ups, large corporations, and expert consultancy. A generalist who loves thinking strategically about problems and building solutions, Joshua is happiest when working across technical domains.
Joshua is particularly excited to work in a city that is actively looking towards the future. When he’s not thinking about robot boats, he can be found DJ’ing, surfing or fitting solar panels to the roof of his van. He also has a keen interested in AI and creative art installments and would love to find more ways to allow technology to empower people.
